NPA Seminar: Gabriele D'Amen, Brookhaven National Laboratory, "A story in four dimensions - The future of 4D detectors in High Energy Physics"

Our knowledge of the fundamental interactions governing the universe relies on our ability to accurately investigate the behavior of elementary particles. Whether they are electrons, photons or else, all particles walk their path in both time and space simultaneously, leaving behind a unique signature. In this seminar, I will review the most advanced methods to detect these spatio-temporal signatures using an old ally: the silicon crystal.

Host: Arianna Garcia Caffaro

Kimball Smith Series: "Beyond Bits – Global Effects of Quantum Technology"

Join the Kimball Smith Series for a moderated panel followed by small group discussions regarding quantum technologies and their relevance to international affairs.

The panel will feature Mark Ritter (Chair of Physical Science Council at IBM Research) and Robert Schoelkopf (Sterling Professor of Applied Physics and Professor of Physics; Director of Yale Quantum Institute). Both panelists are members of the U.S. National Quantum Initiative Advisory Committee.

NPA Seminar: Gavin Morley, Warwick University, "Levitating microdiamonds towards creating a macroscopic superposition"

We magnetically levitate microdiamonds in vacuum, and the microdiamonds we have made contain single nitrogen-vacancy centres with the longest spin coherence times. We aim to use this setup to put a microdiamond into a macroscopic quantum superposition of being in two places at once. But what is the gravitational effect of a mass in such a superposition? Sougato Bose has proposed a way to probe this question experimentally: if gravity is quantum then it could entangle two microdiamonds that are each in spatial superpositions.
